    Hi, we are planning our first trip and super excited but I was wondering do you only get a magic band if your staying in the resort? Can you upgrade or buy a band?

    Hi Laura!  

    Complimentary MagicBands are a perk of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  Guests can choose from solid colors of purple, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and gray.  The complimentary MagicBands cannot be upgraded to specialty MagicBands, but you can certainly purchase them.  

    If you would like to purchase a MagicBand, you can do so prior to your trip from the Disney Store online or the Shop Disney Parks mobile app.  You'll find a bigger selection on the Shop Disney Parks app.  If you'd like to wait until you arrive to purchase, you can also use the app to locate a specific MagicBand.  Find the one you like, click on the "Find on Map" button and you can see which stores carry that particular item.

    Have a magical day!
